Remember who your tangible evidence actually is, it could backfire!

News Flash: "Forum's elbow designated official 'tangible evidence' for rare public appearance. The good intentions went horribly wrong when both participants insisted on communicating exclusively with portable keyboards and obviously fedup spouses alternately beat them senseless with backup power packs they had been forced to carry for their obsessed hubbies as backpacks."

I wonder if our wives think we're less insane when they hear us with another otherwise intelligent person blather on about the band. Seeing that we're not the only ones you know? Makes it seem slightly less crazy.

Hope the visit goes well.

Don,t get by these parts often anymore. Like it (mostly) when I do though... Take care my friends.

Kind of wonder where everyone is though? I miss the real time interaction...

"Slightly Less Crazy"

That's a good one, but I don't think the wife is buying it.

Not a chance for my wife. Hell, she rolled her eyes when the guy that is helping me curate my upcoming "art of rock" show (aptly named, huh?) went off on the events at playboy after dark and details of europe 72 shows. I love hearing his stories and she'd just as soon watch paint dry (which she can do at the gallery).

I thought about you when I wrote that. Hard for me to believe you can't find one shred of Dead ( no rhyme intended ) that she can understand. So are you talking about Rock himself? Straight from the horses mouth then? If so, have his stories got any less hazy than his book? I can't say anything being that he was there and I wasn't BUT there seemed to be a lot of timing inaccuracies. Same thing with the Parrish book I just read. Decent read but definitely a little off on at least the picture datings

According to Rock, he was really pissed off about the book because a lot of inaccuracies were in there that he noted to the publisher but they rushed to release same in order to cash in on Jerry's death - his words re the publisher. I can't vouch for accuracy of same. He has done an audio version of same with David Bean's help (NPRS manager; also here in Monterey), and will release a revised version. We're going to have a bunch of his original poster/artwork collection for the show. The only issue is what's for show and what's for sale. We will have for sale the original painting for the cover of Waiting for Columbus (it's very nice - but very expensive). We're also going to have a bunch of Shepard Fairey rock stuff as well as Roger Dean (YES and others) originals.

well I have to say it's amazing he's atill alive to talk about it. That's good news. Is he still on the major outs with the whole family? that's a shame to be there from the beginning then have it end like that. Does he still talk to Rifkin?

Actually, he went to the first shoreline show and gave me good reports on Warren. He saw people at that so I think there's some good and bad among various people. I don't probe on that topic, but not exactly an extended crew of folks where anyone can safely throw stones without watching for the return fire...

I knew his stepdaughter, Acacia, and Annabelle Garcia pretty well back in the early 80s [used to buy my Jerry tix from them all the time for shows at the Stone; I'm sure they were comps and they used the funds for "fun"] and his daughter Sage used to work for BGP (she's been an asst to Jagger for many years now). . . so we tend to talk about folks we have in common. I was actually with him and our extended Santa Cruz/Lake Tahoe "family" at those Laguna Seca shows with Los Lobos after he was "out". And we set up "shop" next to Kesey's bus and sold the Griffin "Jerry's Back from the Dead" t-shirts while various pranksters messed with sounds and odds and ends in Oakland for those "come back" shows. Ah, the stories from those nights.....

Acacia: wine, plant or beetle? This is an especially productive genera of legumes...but I doubt this has any bearing on the current topic. Nonetheless, I ask, couldn't you think of a better name than a thorny, invasive plant? Hmmm...

Acacia Spirit Scully - never knew until I googled to confirm and came across this:
http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1310&;dat=19850628&id=t2gVAAAAIBAJ&sjid=d-EDAAAAIBAJ&pg=6442,7203398

SUre link sucks. Anyway, she and Annabelle told me some bad stories during that time of having to rub Jer's legs so he could get circulation going to get up and stumble to bed. And if 1/10th of what I heard about Crosby was true, hard to believe he is alive. Then again, Keef still has blood (or something) pumping in his veins...

Actually, if I weren't a biologist, "acacia" would be a cool name...although I always thought "hyla" (a genus of treefrogs) was a great name for a girl (and I know one even...girl, not treefrog). But what do I know having had three boys in a row?

Hey there,

Do you know how I can get a hold of Acacia? I'm an old friend. She knew me as Sandy from San Mateo.

Thanks!
